Waking Up with Three Unexplained Scratches on My Body

Updated on July 12, 2015

Team Wiseman has noticed that strange scratches in certain formations have appeared around the world and were the first to expose it!

This is something that happens all the time, but is rarely discussed. Thanks to the Internet, though, people who observe unusual occurrences, like waking up with three scratches somewhere on their bodies, are starting to talk to each other. And there are a lot of us, and we know the same thing is happening to all of us.

When I say it like that, it sounds crazy, right? Sure it does. It sounds crazy to me, even, and I'm the one writing about the phenomenon of unexplainable scratches appearing on human flesh.

"What does it mean?"

"Why is it happening?"

"Who else is it happening to?"

"Am I crazy, or is this real?"

"What can I do to stop this?"

These are the kinds of questions we are asking.

What are these mysterious scratches on my body?

What Do Unexplained Scratches Mean?

My research shows that these scratches usually come in threes, and appear on the back, arms, legs, and face. Along with scratches, people also experience mysterious bite marks and inexplicable bruising. They seem to appear at times in our lives when temptation is near or when we're facing a big decision.

These scratches have a distinct meaning: "destruction" or "destroy." Rather than going on and on, I'm going to share testimony from others who have been affected by strange scratches. You'll notice that this phenomenon doesn't restrict itself to one country, but rather has afflicted many around the world! You are not crazy, nor are you alone.

Most Recent Poll

Several months ago, I administered a poll about unexplained scratches and the response was fascinting.

Question: Have you ever experienced unexplained scratches, bruises, or bite marks?

  • 97% Yes
  • 3% No

These results are out of the 1047 people who voted, and this is just the beginning. Thousands of victims have turned to the Internet, searching for answers about the three unexplainable scratches appearing on their body, and I'm here to give you answers. Though other sites have tried to help, they all fall short of the Truth.

Personal Stories About Unexplained Scratches

These are real comments left by readers who have experiences scratches and other mysterious events:

"...I found this site via a search on paranormal scratches. I'm the victim of this phenomenon. This has been happening to me for the last 6 years. At first I thought it was just something odd or that maybe one of my cats scratched me and I didn't remember. I actually watched them form one night and had witnesses to the event. They were raised like welts and turned bloody. After about 3 days they completely disappeared. I've had them in places I can't reach which rules out self-infliction. I've had them on my face, neck, arms, legs, and back. Over the years I've almost gotten used to them. I was told that it might be a ghost in my house, but when I moved it kept happening. Also other people that have been close to me have been affected as well. I know this is bizarre and doesn't fit the norm, so I'm here in search of answers. I've been advised by someone who tried to help me that it may in fact be my own psychic doing. Let me explain. We all have a personal spiritual energy and there's a lot about the human mind we are only starting to understand. It's been suggested that I have certain powers or gifts that are making this happen. This power comes at a price, though. It's painful and has affected others I know. The bloody scratch marks eventually heal and disappear but nonetheless it's scary. I'm not saying that I'm some kind of warlock or anything like that. The reality is I don't know what's going on or how to deal with this. I could use some help. So I've chose the grassroots method and decided to find others like me. The person I'm currently talking to has been very helpful, but she is only one source of information. I would like to hear from others. Thanks."

"I wake up sometimes and I have scratches on my upper body, on the front and back of my right shoulder blade, and on my stomach on the right side. I don't inflict them on myself and I also do not have any animals. What do you think they are coming from?"

--

"On way too many occasions I have woken up with bad bruises on my body. I know that at work I often bump my arms and legs into things, but these bruises are on my torso. Unless someone pinched me or hit me, I can not figure out where I got them. On several occasions my husband has noticed bruising on my back and scratching on my back as if someone had just scratched me. They are not bleeding, but they are fresh. I have had dealings in the past with paranormal experiences where I have been pushed down a flight of stairs, or punched in the back. I call to the power of the Lord, Jesus Christ to rid me of these attacks. It usually works. But, the Devil just does not like to let go."

--

"The scratches, if not self-inflicted, are definitely demonic. There have been thousands of these afflictions in the past and 90% have demonic origin.

There is Biblical evidence of this, and it can be overcome. But don't go to a Catholic priest for prayer; they will just tie you up in religious jargon. Call a reputable evangelist."

--

"I am having these issues right now.

Yesterday I awoke with a large bruise on my forearm in the shape of a toothless human bite. The surrounding area is swollen, and I had 2 other people besides myself look for bug/spider bites(NONE)!

Today I have three scratches on the other forearm that became welt-like and burn. They are wider than cat scratches. Two of the scratches run straight up and down the forearm and the third sort of curves towards the other two. They are all about two to two-and-a-half inches long. I don't smoke dope (speed, meth, whatever you want to call it) or crack, no alcohol, no over-the-counter pills."

"I was awoken around 2:24am when my three-year-old son came running into my room screaming, "Get it away from me, get it away from me!" I opened my eyes as he climbed in bed between me and my wife. It was still dark in the room. I looked towards the foot of the bed. With GOD as my witness, clear as day, I saw a green face. I saw his eyes, nose, and mouth. His head was at the foot of the bed as if he was resting his chin on the bed. I screamed as loud as I could and reached for the light. By this time I was standing on my pillow against the headboard... The face disappeared when I turned the light on. I turned every light on in my home and searched every closet, under every bed, every square inch. I found nothing!

We live in a township called Huron believed to have been built on Indian burial grounds. I've been in the garage working underneath the car and have heard someone come in the door and close it and nobody was there at all. We have heard loud banging from the outside which shakes the house: not one or two bangs but six or seven in a row. Once I called the police and they searched the outer grounds. At the time there was four inches of snow on the ground and no one found a single footprint where the banging came from. I have since moved out of that house and my father continues to live there. He had three scratches on him last week. He also said he saw the green face in his room. I built a home on three acres on property right next door. Nothing has happened in my new home as we had it blessed. But my father says he hears a man talking almost every night. He has woken to the sound of water running and has had to shut it off. When he got sick and had to go to the hospital for surgery he was gone for seven days. I let his dogs out every day and fed them and spent time with them. THEY BOTH DIED for no reason the night before my dad was released from the hospital. The vet has no clue what they died from. They were both only four years old. I believe a demonic evil within the home murdered my dad's dogs.

Every thing I have said is true and not a stunt.

On the brighter side of things, my mom, who divorced my father 30 years ago lives in Arizona. She feeds these wild birds every day in her back yard by a stucco wall. The other day she noticed a face on the wall that looks to me like Jesus."

"I have had unexplained scratches, strange bruises, and possible burn marks. I have also had very fine, laser-straight parallel scratches under my right eye which disappeared within hours. I live in a clean house with no pets and shower every day. I'm not religious. All the marks clear up within a few days and do not hurt. I do dream about large demonic looking creatures (tall with gladiator-like human bodies and vile dog-like heads), but in the dreams I'm not afraid and find myself to be stronger and quicker and fend them off very easily. According to my partner I'm a heavy sleeper and a right git to wake up so I don't think the marks are self-inflicted. Some are right in the middle of my back where I couldn't reach. Maybe they're psychosomatic."

--

"I get these scratches when I'm awake..."

--

My brother Guy, my best friend Mindy, and me (Chrissy) were in my room the other day. We sat in a circle in the dark and held hands. Each of us said the words, 'On the first day of school I fell off my bike and got a scratch,' and so on seven times. We turned the lights on and checked our backs. Mindy had SEVEN red scratches lined up on her back. There was one scratch on my neck, two scratches on my right arm, and four on my left arm. My brother only had small ones. We took pictures of Mindy's. Mindy and I have scratches all over our bodies. One of Mindy's scratches left a scab. The one on my neck is very deep, deep enough to leave a rash. We don't have a very good relationship with Jesus Christ, so I don't know what to do...but I wear a cross. It helps me when I'm scared for some reason. I have a really bad feeling about this. Help. I have had weird experiences with these type of things before, such as screaming on my camera when I was making a video and nobody was at my house but me. And I've seen weird things in Mindy's room but i won't get into details because nobody believes me. I don't know what to do and I'm scared to be alone in my room."


How Can I Explain These Mysterious Scratches on My Body?

For several years, my family and I have experienced three scratches appearing mysteriously onto our bodies. During those afflicted years we were disregarding God and all He stood for. We were living for ourselves, using drugs, and living the "rock star" lifestyle.

While the scratches on their own were weird, what drove our suspicion was the fact that they appeared in patterns. Sometimes there were three cat-like scratch marks, just deep enough to see red, but not deep enough to draw blood. Sometimes there was one horizontal line with two vertical lines crossing the center. They would always burn then totally disappear a short time later, only to appear somewhere else on my body.

These were times drowned in confusion and chaos, so much so that the atmosphere seemed to get foggy or hazy. As these scratches appeared more and more, things became clearer. These mysterious scratches had a meaning, a purpose. They were meant to cause chaos, confusion and ultimately destroy us. In a nutshell: demons placed these marks on our bodies.

Unexplained Scratches Caused by Demons

I know, I know. It sounds crazy, and I agree. It is pretty amazing what really happens behind the scenes of humanity's existence. My family and I have been told that we are crazy too, but we know the truth. All we did was experience a phenomenon, and have decided to share our experience with others experiencing the same thing. Little did we know, it was happening to millions around the world!

The three parallel scratches are a symbol that means "Destroy." The target that is to be destroyed is us. God tells us that the devils go to and fro, seeking whom they may devour. The only answer to stopping is total surrender to Jesus Christ. How do we know? We called to Him, and even though we disregarded His ways, He answered. After several months of making the right decisions in life and becoming more aware and obedient to God's moral laws, we were set free! We are living proof that Jesus Christ is our helper and our Savior!

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: [1 Peter 5:8]

      I know u can stretch urself at night but my stratch didn't appear overnight. We were watching a movie, we stopped it so he could go smoke. I felt something on my forehead and just touched the area. I had a stratch on me. So I looked in the mirror its shaped like a cat stratch. (we don't have a cat) it looked like it just happened. He came back in and I asked him "why did you tell me I had a stratch on my forehead" his response was Becuz it wasn't there before.

      Ever since i was a little girl i use to have dreams about demons and hell. Mind you I had nothing to feel guilty about at that age. I had a bad case of sleep paralysis as a teen with a black shadow saying my name and coming to my bed side and floating above me and i couldn't move or breathe.Scared me enough to seek help with Jesus.Then as i got older i tried to ignore it but didn't help ,,and was having futuristic and apocalyptic dreams. I saw my step father die in a dream and he died 3 yrs later exactly how my dream played. I moved to a house that was renovated and within two months i started noticing stuff like light bulbs blowing..then exploding head syndrome sleeping. Soon after i started waking up with scratches..mostly in threes across my chest..my neck and arms. Even worse one formed while i was awake and it burned. I started taking pictures on my phone. I moved out and it's been better ..but I wont sleep in total darkness. They don't like the light so i sleep with a string of white lights over my bed. I am either haunted or being an intuitive water sign doesn't help but i feel the urge to get the message across..and trust me there are the unseen....I am 50 yrs old now..and very spiritual..Pray for protection..ask for Jesus and help from Arc Angels...God bless.

      My 15 yr old son has the same scratches on his back. First three we noticed that appeared was in the middle. Another three claw marks showed up on his lower back. Now he has three more claw marks between his shoulder blades. My son is strong and I know he has the gift of seeing people that have passed over or lost.

      But we are now getting worried because they are not going away. But more are appearing

      A few years ago I was staying at an older hotel in the Easton area of Columbus, Oh. We were there for a business event and booked the hotel for two nights. The first night there sometime around 2:00-3:00 am I felt a very noticeable burning sensation on the inside of my right leg just above the knee. The sensation was severe enough to wake me but I didn't get up to investigate the cause.

      In the morning when I was showering, I noticed on my leg, three distinct parallel scratches approximately 1.5 inches long, on my leg in the area I felt the burning sensation overnight. They looked like cat cat scratch and were approximately 1/4 inch apart. I didn't think to much of it at the time and kinda joked with my GF about my demon scratch.

      I have a friend that investigates the paranormal and I mentioned it to him a year or so after the fact. He explained it was a sign to destroy, the demonology aspect, etc. Since then I sometimes look for similar experience others have had.

      The scar remained on my leg for well over a year but has finally disappeared. At that time in my life I had become active in the church and performed live music in church monthly. Don't know why I was targeted but it absolutely happened. My GF freaks when I talk about it.

      I found this page by Googling "three scratches". Last night my youngest child was sick and vomiting. She ended up in bed with my wife, sleeping closest to our bathroom with my wife on my side of the bed. I was at our computer in the living room and had the TV on. I turned to watch some TV and saw something out of the corner of my eye. It looked like a grey "wisp" that moved in our dining area. A few minutes later it sounded like something was moved or pushed. I sat still and didn't see or hear anything else.

      I went to sleep in a spare bedroom and got up this morning with no issues. My wife took the day off to watch our youngest and I already had the day off and planned on running errands. After getting our two oldest kids on the bus I went out shopping. I stopped at our local Wawa gas station for coffee and a sandwich. My wife called and said that she went to get a shower and noticed three scratches on her body at the base of her neck / right side. She said they itched and burned. She has never had this happen before and our youngest had her fingernails trimmed two days prior for picture day so it's unlikely that our daughter did this. The scratches look like three claw marks moving downward and inward towards each other at the bottom.

      I had this happen to me on my right side on my rib cage a while ago but didn't think much of it. We're in Southern Maryland in a house built in 2003. We don't practice religion nor have we been involved with witchcraft. Both of us were raised Catholic. I have no clue what is going on. Our oldest (11 year old girl) says our house is spooky and that she sometimes sees a black shadow in my bedroom when she's watching TV in the living room. I've seen the same thing in this house and the same phenomenon happened in my childhood home in Pennsylvania.

      my daughter has told my Mother that she has seen a black cloud moving on the ceiling above the bed when we visited. I saw the same thing in the corner of my room when I was little. Our son (8 years old) has been scared at night in the past and said that he heard scratching noises in his room. I would like an idea as to what's going on an what, if any connection there is between my oldest daughter and myself.

      I have been dealing with demons for 2 years now and this was the first time I was scratched like this. It was a surprise and scared me at first but I have been active in my church and am close to God, especially for a year now, so I feel protected by Him. I hope this will stop soon and plan to stay as close to the Lord as I can because that is all I can do to protect myself. These demons are really tricky and have been tricking me for a while. I have a huge history with this I could go on and on, but I do know they are real. Good luck and stay close to God. Read the scriptures and pray and ask for His guidance and protection.

      I’ve Benin getting scratches but they only come as one scratch not in three and are usually spread across my body. A few of my friends have also been scratched but with them it’s been two parallel marks not three and when ever they get scratched its only around me. Also from some strange reason I don’t dream. I have dreamless nights and naps, but when I do dream they start off pleasant but then turn south quickly.

      This was happening to me for a few months now and I dont know whats happening. I definitely know that I don't scratch myself during the night and I dont have pets. I dont do drugs nor smoke. Comments from this website suggest praying to Jesus and it worked but I can't do that cause I'm Buddhist. Help me someone plz. I just got a recent scar mark but this one was different from the previous mark. It seemed like a bunch of holes arranged into a square like shape and it was red. It wasnt painful like the previous ones and it was a lot more obvious. It was under my neck but not on it and it was about 4cm across and down. After noticing it I started to feel sensitive on that part. Help me someone plz Im too young to die.

      Hello,

      First of all, I do get these scratches for yeas, and I have been ignoring them till today, I would like to get to the bottom of this. While the effort is admirable the conclusion drawn isn't. First of, your poll is worthless, and here is why.

      "Question: Have you ever experienced unexplained scratches, bruises, or bite marks?"

      The question in relation to the topic at hand is missing keywords. Maybe you should have added the words WHILE ASLEEP. In light of that, or rather, in shadow of that, your conclusion, which isn't really a conclusion mere biased speculation.

      At last, you and your family doing drugs? Like you go to your mom asking for cocaine??? I should let you know, that I am in the market to be adopted, and me and your family could get along together. I even, got the scars/scratches to prove it.

      All da best.

      Today I received three scratches on my left arm and I would've totally agreed with everything the article was telling me only for the fact I was awake when it happened. My mom doesn't have long nails that could've scratched when she held my arm and if she did I would've felt the pain during the infliction.

      Also I've had two thin scratches on the back of my hand which I noticed right before I was getting ready for bed.

      So I'm confused what does it mean if I'm awake when this happens?

      p.s. I've gotten scratches before and felt the pain during the process of someone giving them (whether by accident or purpose)

      So it would be appreciative if someone could help me.

      Anyone reading this comment. These unexplained scratches are unclean and demonic spirits that try to oppress and scare mankind. The devil hates us with a fury cause we are made in God's image and likeness. Plead the blood of Jesus Christ before you sleep. Call upon the name of Jesus Christ. He will save you and protect you. His name means "God saves".

      God bless everyone

      The past 3 days I have found 2 dead rats and 1 dead bat in my front lawn. All in the same exact spot. I discovered the bat this morning after I had woken up with scratch/marks on my back right below the armpit. Almost where someone would grab you to pick you up....little freaky but not sure what it means. I have experience the scratches for years.....any suggestion? Or idea as to why?

      Amen. Glory be to the Lord in the Highest! The devil hates us wants nothing more to deter us from love of Lord Jesus Christ. Please those whom are experiencing these to pray and rebuked in the name of Jesus Christ, but not only pray but FAST. In Mark 9 vs 25-29 tells us how Jesus dealt with an unclean spirit and how he told his disciples that some demons have to be fasted against. Some demons will not leave that easily you but keep on praying, fasting and seek Jesus Christ as your refugee.

      Woke up with a terribly painful burning sensation on my stomach this morning. I looked in the mirror and saw 3 scratches all parallel, 3 inches in length and about a half an inch apart. Raised wounds almost to the point of bleeding, with absolutely no explanation of how they could have got there of course I asked Google for an explanation, LOL. And I ended up here! I guess I'm one of the 97 percentile!

      I woke up with what looks like a symmetrical symbol scratch on my leg. My daughter is freaked out by this. We definitely have poltergeist activity and others have seen 2 full bodied aparitions. One is a man in very old style formal dress and the other is a little girl in a white dress and corkscrew pigtails. I refuse to be afraid and light sage whenever tension seems to be building in the house however if I have been marked by an entity I really want to know so I can deal with the situation appropriately. I didn't see an option to share photos. Any information is very much appreciated.

      You are being marked, and it is all for one reason.

      1 Timothy 6:12 tells us to FIGHT the good fight, and that fight is for your faith. Will you believe the lies literally scratched into you or will you lay hold of Eternal Life through Christ, our Lord!?? We choose the latter.

      Evil is a liar. Jesus Christ is Truth. He has also written something on you... it's in your heart.

      May God continue to bless your journey Home.

      I had a experience like these several times , waking up and looking at scratches ,it happened many times that I can't count and just took it like its normal , yes mostly its 3 lines or 4 ... I still can't explain it ... Have heard and seen strange things as well , for instance,one day saw a gigantic creature as tall as up to 20feets in my dream,looks like fucked up that I can't explain it and made a run for it but to my surprise as I was running , though it had long legs but he's not walking with them but yet approached like a movement controlled by winds... As I woke up , I was so scared in my bedroom and just a second or two seconds after, I heard a sound at the back of my room but my bible was so close to me and I picked it up and started shouting Jesus then the sound stopped ... I also remember that before that time, there was a day I was trying to sleep half carried away and then saw something very nasty looking. Dark in face blends with the night but the eyes are so big , looks feminine with long hair. Very big and gigantic. And trying to I think wrestle me down and strangle me but I kept using my hands to fight it and we struggled which lasted almost a minute. Then it was gone , and it later seemed like it is unreal but I know it is real but it made me think as if its a dream ... If I had told anyone I am sure they will never believe it but it happened and I an not insane. I also fly in mydreams without wings , I tried many times to control the flight but its not easy. Because sometimes I fly as high that I try to avoid power cables but I realised its very funny because I only step one. Two and up and am flying , looking at different people under who can't fly and some asking me teach us how to fly ... Its weird right ? Human nature has a lot hidden from us but it manifests to some of us in different ways. That was when I believed in Demons & Angels ... How about a very strange noise in the night about 2am? that sounds soo scary ... It has also happened once and I heard it as if its from the next house but the following. Morning , I aasked everyone in the neighbourhood what strange noise and was that and they all said they heard nothing ... That has happened once as well ... So what do you say to that ... ? That's what life is all about sometimes ... But as for the marks, my question is I hope the devil is not marking some people ? Its hard ... Let's hear another persons view ...

      I think maybe the reason you woke up with scratches is because you were on drugs, as you admitted in this article. Drugs will make you sleep walk, and do things unconsciously.

      I've been living in the same apartment for almost three years and honestly, I'm just now noticing these healed scratches. Sometimes I'll just feel my skin and find a scratch that happened out of nowhere. I always get a feeling like I'm being watched too, especially at night. And then there are times where things in my room will move. Or stuff disappears for a while and I find it sometime later.

      My girlfriend was attached by something last night and lt left about 30 or 40 scratch marks on her body. They almost were all in three's. Also i saw a symbol scratched into her shoulder. I saw them appearing on her body as she began hyperventilating from fear. It looked like a horror movie. I will be contacting a catholic priest and seeing if holy water and blessed rosaries. I have noticed scratches here and there in my life but nothing this violent. If i would have taken her to a hospital, they would have asked what she was attacked by. Yelling out loud seemed to make it stop. I hope this does not happen to anyone else. It was like a nightmare.

But what happens to you if that didn’t happen? Leave comment. What happens if an angles came? What would they do? Would they give us good luck for the rest of the year you know I don’t know alright so yeah mate? Also having a nightmare might wake you up in the middle of the night.

      Just finished brushing my teeth and washing my face, and when I looked in the mirror I noticed 2 huge scratch lines and several small ones on the back of my right arm.I wish I can post a picture of them here, but trust me, I'm not lying. One I can understand me doing by mistake, but not this.

      It's not the first time, but they were never this big or this scary. I'm a born again Christian btw, but I've become far...far away from Christ.

      I really need to re-examine my life.

Too small. Also my brother got out of prison and held my 6 mo old for first time. The baby visibly changed before our eyes. He would slam head into tile floor blacking his eyes. He is now adhd. He wasnt before. I and my brother had something happen as kids that changed us too. How do we protect ourselves. We plead the blood of jesus giving glory paise to god

      I've been waking up with the occasional scratch and sometimes a bruise, but the problem is I do not bruise easily nor are the bruises in places that I could easily hurt. These odd bruises and scratches have also been appearing a lot recently this past week. I've gotten a three small finger size bruises on my right bicep, a scratch on my left calf, a bruise with a pretty small scratch on the middle of my back which is almost impossible to reach much less bruise and scratch, and as I was sitting and watching Tv I look at my right bicep and sure enough another small finger sized bruise had appeared.

      I have had strange things happen to me before and I have a weird fear of my closet and bathroom I always feel like I'm being watched even if my closet is closed. As a kid orbs would appear in some photographs, I saw figures even at one point I even followed one, I occasionally hear whispers, I have heared and seen things fall in my kitchen for no apparent reason, and I use to have pretty bad nightmares so did my sibling. I don't know whats going on, but a friend's mom is offering to burn sage in the house to get rid of it. I don't even believe in this stuff all that much.

      Just yesterday upon waking up I notice a few scratches on my neck one of them appearing to be the letter M then other F. I have no answer i notice the marks right after my shower. Water burn across my neck. There starting to disappear now. I have no clue if i had done this or something else.

      My fiance sleep has been wacky for the past few days. He has nightmares and says babe watch out there someone there. I get up turn the lights on and see nothing.. I think its been a long time event. Few months ago i waken up to having a bite mark. Or other letter m. Unexplained bruises too. I sound crazy atm. Not knowing what the causes. My animal's my dogs and cats have been fine. There not acting strange. Been mediating and writing what i hear. Few i heard dont tell haha are scared.

      Im not sure if it is paranormal and toying with us.

      Or just mind games. My fiance even broke out with hives out of no where before. We are ignoring it. And going to cleanse the apartment. Mind you been living in the same apartment for 7 years.

      Just a couple days ago, I noticed a scratch across my chest just below my neck, I shrugged it off as my cat, but she hardly ever sleeps with me. Just after I got very very sick, I can hardly get out of bed. Just today I woke up with I scratch underneath my right breast. I wear clothes when I sleep so I know it's not my cat. This worries me because I just relapsed with self harm and I have an eating disorder. I'm worried that it could possibly be a demon that's trying to make me weaker and make me break down more and more, my depression only became worse once this started happening. Anyone have any thoughts?

It’s really creeping me out due to a paranormal experience a few nights ago that my parents had.

I do I did not scratch my arms at work and with all the winter stuff I am wearing to keep work is no way something external can scratch me without damaging the stuff I was wearing. interestingly, both scratches are about 3 04 4 inches a part, but they are inline and seem to me following the same blood vain. 3 days now and it seem to be healing.

      I've had paranormal experiences in my past mostly happening at my grandmothers house. I was scared one night and went to sleep in her bed one night. I was awakened by something i looked up from my pillow to see a creature jump over her and scare me. It kind of looked like a gremlin. I'm 31 now and this happened almost 20 years ago i still have this memory. Now having said that, within the past 10 years I've had random scratches show up on my abdomen once in awhile always 3 no more no less. I am not suicidal and do not put myself in situations in which i can inflict harm to myself. In the past couple weeks I've been having a tough time with my emotions been stressed out from the holidays and in a fit of sadness i did say out loud that i wanted to kill myself in front of my fiance. Since then, I've gone to bed and woken up in the living room which is a side effect of sleep drunkeness and also have seen three scratches on my collar and abdomen just recently today. I'm very nervous about what is going on and could use some feedback and/or suggestions on how to deal with this.
